Supply chain assurance

In increasingly complex global supply chains, retailers and manufacturers seek solutions to support consistent quality and safety criteria, while providing them with better visibility on any potential quality or authenticity issues, as well as environmental and ethical concerns.

Advisory and scientific support services

We have a long history of providing advisory and scientific support to UK Government through our national roles, as well as assisting with incident response during, for example, the UK BSE crisis or the horsemeat scandal.

Informed Sport and Informed Choice certification programmes

We have also used our scientific capabilities in drug surveillance and knowledge of the international sports community to develop the Informed Sport and Informed Choice certification programmes, which provide confidence to sports supplements manufacturers, sports associations / regulators, endorsing athletes and end consumers that their products are free from banned contaminants.
